Guitar chords with lyrics

THE HOUSE FELL DOWN -- ELTON JOHN, "The Captain and the Kid"(2006)

INTRO
Cm | Ab7 | Bb G/B | Cm
Cm9 | Ab7 | Bb G7 | Cm
          ("ah-ha-ha-ha..."
  (in time)
Cm | Fm/C Cm | Cm | Fm/C Cm |

VERSE
  Cm                   Ab7
The sun is up and the shades are all pulled down
     Bb      G/B     Cm
I'm more paranoid with every little sound
     Cm               Ab7
Like the leaf blower blowing the leaves around
   G7                 Cm
And a siren wailing on the other side of town

VERSE
    Cm                  Ab7
Oh the TV's on and the colors really hurt my head
      Bb         G/B       Cm
If I could think straight I'd wish that I was dead
  Cm              Ab7
Or curled up naked in my lover's bed
      G7                   Cm
Instead I'm hanging over Hell suspended by a single thread

CHORUS
      Fm7            Bb
And I don't recall who said it at this time
     Ab      Eb         Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
      Fm7           Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
       Ab          Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
       G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
       Cm       Fm7  G7  Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down

INSTRUMENTAL
Cm | Fm/C Cm | Cm | Fm/C Cm |

VERSE
    Cm                 Ab7
With a rolled up note I'm hovering on that line
   Bb        G/B     Cm
Three days on a diet of cocaine and wine
   Cm                Ab7
And a little weed just to level me sometime
     G7                        Cm
I put the clock in the drawer 'cause I've cancelled out the time

CHORUS
        Fm7          Bb
And still that saying gets inside my head
     Ab      Eb         Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
      Fm7           Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
       Ab          Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
       G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
       Cm       Fm7  G7  Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down

BREAKDOWN
     Am7b5
So don't knock on my door, don't try to call
  Ab7
I'm holed up in this room talking to the wall
        Am7b5
When you're as high as this you think you know it all
      Ab7                  G G/A G/B G/A G7
When you're this deep in there's no place else to fall

INSTRUMENTAL
          Cm | Ab7 | Bb G/B | Cm
"I'm bottoming out"
Cm | Ab7 | G7 | Cm

CHORUS
      Fm7            Bb
And I don't recall who said it at this time
     Ab      Eb         Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
      Fm7           Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
       Ab          Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
       G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
       Cm       Fm7  G7  Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
        Fm7          Bb
And still that saying gets inside my head
     Ab      Eb         Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
      Fm7           Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
       Ab          Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
       G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
       Cm       Fm7  G7  Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
    Fm7  G7  Cm
And the house fell down
